The Joint Industry Board (JIB) is an impartial organisation that sets standards, regulates relations between employers and employees and aims to improve the industry, its status and productivity.
Since its inception, the JIB has fostered relationships between electrical contracting companies of all sizes and their workforce. In setting the standards for training, competence and terms and conditions of employment, it helps members maintain stability in the workplace and offer employment conditions that attract, train and motivate the best operatives. The JIB also runs the Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS), as a partner scheme of CSCS, setting standards for occupational disciplines and qualification requirements in the industry.
JIB provides services related to successful grievance and dispute resolution by its professional mediators as well as other areas linked to the wellbeing and success of the industry including training, competence and employee welfare and pensions.
